Home Seller Tip - Show your home, not your everything!

When selling your home distractions should not be part of the showing process.  As a seller you have only a brief time, some say less than a minute, to make to make a good impression or be scratched from the list!

I read a feedback comment yesterday that said something like the dark wood floors, drawn curtains and over-sized, stuffed furniture made them fill like they were in an over sized coffin.  That does not sound like an impression that will bring an offer!

Too much furniture makes a house look cluttered and small.  People don't stand around in amazement impressed by a rooms capacity.  And shelf after shelf filled with books or collectibles doesn't impress either.  These, along with lots of family pictures, may again distract from the properties positive characteristics.

Even if you are not going to buy a new home when you sell, take the time to visit some model homes and notice the staging.  There is no clutter.  That is what you need to aim for although maybe not totally impersonal. (You are still living in the home!)

Here are a few articles you may find helpful when preparing to sell your Brevard County home.

The goal should be to show your home, not your everything!    I did not mention anything about cleaning your home - that is a given!
